Well, maybe it would help if I paid a little more attention next time! I followed a link from the GNU emacs site and found this list. I guess I just assumed it was a list for the use of RCS within emacs. Thanks very much for your help, if this doesn't do what I need, I'll try and direct my question more appropriately.

This is more an Emacs question than RCS, and I know little about Emacs,
but I'd use:
``M-x debug-on-entry vc-diff''
then to find out how to use the Emacs debugger try:
This is what I saw in a session:
* vc-do-command("*vc-diff*" 2 "rcsdiff" "/www/htdocs/Files/file.php"
WORKFILE nil "-q" "-r1.4" nil "-c")
so it looks like you should make sure your rcsdiff can handle:
rcsdiff -q -c -r1.4 myprog.sh
otherwise, try the emacs list. perhaps one of the vc-mode authors will
pipe in here though.
